On June 17, 2010, the night of the Los Angeles Lakers Game 7 victory over the Boston Celtics, Los Angeles fans took to the streets. Rioters threw bottles and rocks at police, set bonfires, and overturned vehicles.

The police declared an unlawful assembly around the Staples Center after fans poured out of the arena to celebrate the Lakers 2010 NBA championship. Los Angeles police arrested around 38 people, mostly for public intoxication.

Under California Penal Code section 407, an unlawful assembly occurs when two or more people, assembled and acting together, meet to commit an unlawful act or commit a lawful act in a violent or obnoxious way.

Under California Penal Code section 647(f), anyone found in a public place under the influence of a drug and who is either a danger to himself or others or who interferes with the use of a public street is guilty of public intoxication.
